As a mother of a child “in the business” I made all the mistakes you can think of. I got scouted in the malls (and that was 19 years ago!). The Performer’s Academy is an wonderful place to learn to perform and take those skills to the stage, screen, classroom or boardroom. For those that want to pursue a career in the industry, I can certainly hold your hand in that process. You do need to be trained, you do need to have the desire and ability to get to LA for auditions and the kids have to have good grades to get their work permit. Most important of all — it has to be “their idea”.
